Default considering moving to the KC area, tips???

My husband and I are considering moving to the KC (KS side) area and we just wanted to get some tips on good neighborhoods and places that are safe and ideal to raise a family. We are both young (mid-late 20's) and would like to live near KC but not in the city itself. What are some areas close to the city that are fairly easy access to the freeways? Our ideal budget is at most $300,000 and would prefer a newer, 3+ bedroom home WITH A YARD!! We have looked at several listings online but we just don't know what areas to search through.

I hope I included enough information, but if not, please ask!
Thank you so much!

Getting close to the city with newer construction in Kansas under 300k is going to be a toughie. Lots of lovely older homes to be had at that pricepoint near the city and lots of newer houses under 300k farther away from the city.

Maybe a tear down is your best bet. Here's one in Prairie Village just west of State Line: http://www.realtor.com/realestateand...8_M70209-51260
